I think this is currently a reasonable statement - however there has
been various proposals for applying features that are currently
considered linear only to areas as well.
See for example
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Proposed_features/area and
also waterway=river vs waterway=riverbank.

If these are adopted, then there will be areas and linear features
that are equivalent and need to be rendered at the same time in order
to get casings/cores correctly intersected.
